I interviewed Shepp in , and he told me that he had an epiphany at one point:. Not long after that, Shepp shifted gears somewhat, embracing the blues and jazz standards much more strongly than before, while still retaining his politics; basically, he tried to bring people into the fold by using songs they knew as a kind of Trojan horse. Just as many of the artists he discusses intended their work to speak to people in the neighborhoods they came from, but wound up reaching white listeners in downtown clubs or at European festivals, SoundWorks is published by a university press, and many sections are written in dense academic jargon that will be immediately comprehensible to tenure committees and graduate students in the humanities, but may leave the lay reader grumbling.
Pianist Chris Pattishall has made a hell of a debut album. Pattishall is a student of pre-bebop jazz Williams was born in and began working professionally at the end of the s , and his style here is romantic and intimate. But then a powerful beat kicks in, and the whole piece shifts to a thick, rolling blues, with a genuinely stunning reverb effect and a second, ghostly overdub added to Mulherkar's trumpet break.
This is riff-based, groove-heavy music with a head-nodding quality that may remind you of Dogon A. Gradually, a groove builds up, as the energy level rises and rises, and before long the audience is whooping along. You may find yourself doing the same thing from your couch.
On most of their albums, the rhythm team sets up grinding, slowly churning grooves as Gustafsson tears into his tenor or baritone saxophone, grabbing hold of a riff and choking it into submission. Defeat is more subtle than their previous work, though, partly due to the presence of a pair of guests and partly to the members' own creative mood; they're stretching themselves rather than diving into a punk-jazz rut.
Goran Kajfes plays quartertone trumpet, Mats Aleklint plays trombone and sousaphone, and Gustafsson himself plays flute on many tracks. On "Defeat Only Further Apart ," the brass provide mournful harmonies throughout the piece, and Aleklint gets a terrific, swelling solo.

And, it lasted, he reports, for his entire stay in prison, although it did ease off somewhat near the end of his sentence.
Some of the convicts even wished him well as he finished his sentence and was released. The structure of the work is mostly chronological and follows a very logical plan. The first days are treated in considerable detail, with the first weeks, then months, and the first year are dealt with in some detail, while the following years are given in less detail. Significant events are covered in the latter parts of the narrative, such as his stay in the hospital. This is psychologically well-grounded as we all are far more observant when we are put into a new situation, and details are far more noticeable for their novelty.
